Our second annual (and again virtual) Agility Conference wrapped up on Friday afternoon. 

To say that I am sad to see it end is a huge understatement. We had an amazing turnout, great interaction, and some truly spectacular speakers, and I really didn’t want it to end!

But all good things must come to an end, so I wanted to sit down, reflect, and highlight some parting thoughts. 

In my keynote, I laid out what Agility is and our goals for the conference. 

Agility is:

  • A gesture of gratitude and appreciation. 
  • A great learning environment for our partners and customers, as well as ourselves. 
  • An opportunity to meet like-minded peers, both new and old. 
  • An inspiration to reimagine what can be done in Risk Cloud. 
  • A way to celebrate the countless ways to reimagine risk.

And I think we achieved all of this, and so much more. 

Here’s just a selection of what went on:

We had so many great comments and questions from attendees, ranging from knowledge sharing to big, meaty problems that are just waiting for an answer. 

We got a first-hand report on the current state of GRC from Michael Rasmussen, the grandfather of GRC himself.

We had a great presentation from LogicGate employees, showing how and where we use our own software, Risk Cloud.

We heard countless stories from customers, telling us how they’ve overcome challenges, what best practices they’re using, and how having a holistic GRC solution and process enables them to foster communication across their organizations.

We discussed creating trust, transparency, and the importance of relationship building and educating those in your organization to truly understand the impact of risk.

We got inspired by Nicole Malachowski—the first woman to fly with the US Thunderbirds and our fabulous keynote—who told us that we need to slow down in order to speed up.

We heard more than once that risk is everyone’s responsibility in an organization.

We got excited about updates and new products, both on the roadmap and already available in Risk Cloud.

And last, but certainly not least, we learned about Risk Cloud Quantify®, the newest and most exciting product we’re launching this year. 

Risk Cloud Quantify, based on the Open FAIR™ model and rooted in risk quantification, gives users a competitive advantage by converting once ambiguous data into clear monetary values. This common language empowers users to easily communicate threats cross-functionally to executives, board members, and other stakeholders while adopting a proactive, ROI-based risk approach to use risk as a true revenue generator.

We have more blogs like this, recapping sessions and highlighting key learnings that we’ll publish in the coming days.

So, while I’m sad to see Agility 2021 end, I’m excited to relive some of the magic that we experienced last week. 

And I’m very much looking forward to Agility 2022, where we can hopefully all meet each other in person! Until then, I’m looking forward to continuing to reimagine risk with all of you in the virtual world.
